Editorial Reviews

Review

This brave book challenges us, urgently, to rethink crime and punishment for the 21st century. It is not by accident that the U.S. became the world's largest incarcerator in just thirty-five years. After the War on Crime exposes how structural inequalities based on race and class and written into our laws, institutions and everyday practices have blackened our jails and prisons and reproduced segregated communities inside and out.-Susan Tucker,Director, The After Prison Initiative, Open Society Institute

"This thought-provoking book contains 14 essays that explore the far-reaching collateral damages and socioeconomic consequences of tough-on-crime policies."

More About the Author

Ian Haney López is one of the nation's leading thinkers on how racism has evolved in the United States since the civil rights era. A law professor at UC Berkeley, he is the author of three books and his writings have appeared across a range of sources, from the Yale Law Journal to the New York Times.

Ian's current research emphasizes the connection between racial divisions in society and growing wealth inequality in the United States. His most recent book, "Dog Whistle Politics," lays bare how conservative politicians exploit racial pandering to convince many voters to support policies that ultimately favor the very rich and hurt everyone else.

Ian has written books on both white and Latino racial identity, respectively "White by Law" and "Racism on Trial." A constitutional law scholar, he has also written extensively on how once-promising legal responses to racism have been turned into restrictions on efforts to promote integration.

The John H. Boalt Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, Ian has been a visiting law professor at Yale, New York University, and Harvard, where he also served as the Ralph E. Shikes Visiting Fellow in Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. He holds a master's in history from Washington University, a master's in public policy from Princeton, and a law degree from Harvard. In 2011, Ian received an Alphonse Fletcher Fellowship, awarded to scholars whose work furthers the integration goals of Brown v. Board of Education.
